Stuff We Like: Garmin Foretrex 301

Sometimes when you’re backpacking, the last thing you need is something else to carry. So leave the bulky hand-held global positioning system unit at home and take along the Foretrex 301 ($150, garmin.com). This slim, wrist-mounted GPS receiver is rugged and waterproof and will keep you pointed in the right direction. For an extra $50 or so, the Foretrex 401 adds an electronic compass, barometric altimeter and a few other features. Remember, though, no technology is perfect. Never hit the trail without a good ol’ map and compass — and be sure you know how to use them. They’ll never run out of batteries.

  1. Looks Good but you never said how much battery life it has because you only said how much the map has
